I've asked before - please provide sketches that show the position of the seesaws, the center bridge and the ball at various times throughout the cycle - similar to what I did back in post #13. Can you please do that? It doesn't need to be pretty. Thanks.

 This machine is based on gravity power and seesaw system.
Seems like yours is an overbalancing system from a quick skim read

You claim the energy that you put into the system is less than what you get out, but I don't believe your measurements are accurate. Please reshoot the video, this time with a ruler placed next to it so we can see how high you lift the ball (it looks to be more than 10 cm) and how high the heavier end is lifted (looks less than 5 cm to me). Thanks.

 Jun 20th 2017, 10:43 AM #30 Member   Join Date: May 2017 Posts: 30 Hello Mr Chip, I just used these figures to avoid points. The actual figure s are .the heavy part is lifting up 5.2cm. And height of scale to place the ball again is 12.8cm. But my request to you that take the front load 15 kilogram and ball weight 2 kilogram. Now calculate and tell me about your calculations. Thank you Sir!
